Episode 7 - Building Community through Art, Culture and Politics

LISTEN: 62:28

Beit Zatoun is a cultural centre, gallery and community meeting space in downtown Toronto that promotes the interplay of art, culture and politics to explore issues of social justice and human rights, both locally and internationally. Through music, poetry, film, public forums, visual art, conversations and more, Beit Zatoun contributes to an understanding of social and political issues in ways that strengthen and connect both communities and individuals interested in bringing about change.  We spoke to founder Robert Massoud on site.
